AP Art History
Calling all high school students, do you enjoy learning about the different cultures of the world, thinking about how artistic tastes, styles, and technologies have changed through the ages? Are you interested in the political and religious messages behind works of art or the way we interact with space and meanings in architecture? Join our AP Art History class and learn to identify works of art by artist or time period, to analyze individual works of art in depth, to compare and contrast art from different world cultures and periods, and to examine influences in art. Over the years, students from many schools have achieved a great deal in the art history class at the Museum, deepened their understanding of the Museum’s collections and exhibitions, and had a great time doing so. Come carry on the tradition!
The class meets daily at 7:25 A.M. in the Museum library. The course is FREE and offered for academically motivated students from all schools and the homeschool community. To apply, please contact Alice Novak email@example.com, 334-240-4361. The deadline is April 28.

Middle and High School Classes
– English teachers, bring your students to practice Ekphrastic writing (or writing in response to works of art!) in the galleries. Co-lead a writing workshop with a Museum and host a reading at the end.
– History teachers, don’t forget about the American historical sources hanging all over the Museum walls. Call us about an American history gallery talk or writing assignment for your students.
– Foreign language teachers, bring your students to discuss works of art in a second language. We can help you find references to your country of focus in our collection. We have Museum docents who speak German, Spanish, and Korean.
– Math and science teachers, brainstorm with us to think about applications of mathematics and science in works of art and architecture, explore the wall in ARTWORKS based on the Fibonacci sequence and more.
-Interested in having your students learn more about working at an art Museum? Call about the possibility of partnering on a Junior Curators or Junior Docent program or to take a behind the scenes tour of the Museum.
